Description

Peter Abrahams is a national best-selling author Stephen King calls his "favorite American suspense novelist." Oblivion is the deftly plotted tale of a man thrust into a desperate situation while beset with memory loss. Private investigator Nick Petrov achieved celebrity status after apprehending serial killer Gerald Reasoner. When a woman retains his services to track down her missing daughter, Nick senses all is not as it seems. But then he suffers a head trauma, and large gaps appear in his memory. Bizarre clues lead him to believe that he must revisit the Reasoner case to solve the mystery he has been plunged into-even as a mounting sense of dread indicates that he might not make it through this investigation in one piece. Abrahams orchestrates a deftly plotted tale that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats from start to finish. "Abrahams creates palpable empathy for the bruised Nick and his pitch-perfect prose is a joy."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Professional reviews

"An articulate story with thoroughly original characters read by an appealing narrator will make this a listener favorite. After a brain hemorrhage, PI Nick Petrov tries to remember the case he's been working on. Confused and weakened, he digs his way into the puzzle, somehow knowing that his healing depends upon finding the solution. Narrator Ken Marks makes Petrov a satisfying hard-boiled hero. The author deftly mirrors the speech and behavior of a brain trauma victim through halting language, interior monologue, and flashback, and Marks makes it work with his urgent staccato delivery. The precise, unadorned prose and Marks's understated, controlled performance result in a thoroughly engrossing mystery that listeners won't want to miss. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
